Payday Monsanto “Your Slumber” Music Video & Lyrics

Payday Monsanto “Your Slumber”

Payday Monsanto’s “Your Slumber” is about mass media controlling public opinion to the point of causing the population to do things that are not in it’s best interest.

The video highlights how the people in the West and in Muslim countries have been divided by false stereotypes created by the media in both cultures.

It’s time we all woke up and worked together toward peace and understanding.

Payday Monsanto “Your Slumber” Lyrics

Payday Monsanto Itanimulli- Call Me When You'Re Free

Buy Payday Monsanto's "Your Slumber"

“Very soon we will give you an implantable
Chip to insert in your neck like an animal.
Let me slow it down so you can comprehend it.
I’ve got the undebunkable truth.
Elementary puzzle, not a complicated riddle.
They’ve got you talkin about guns, diamonds, and bitches.
Elementary puzzle, not a complicated riddle.
I don’t think you understand the severity of the situation.

Atomic bomb blasts brought to you by Comcast.
Recorded on DVR so you can press rewind fast.
Virtual combat prepping you for missions soon.
Practicing on civilians while you’re chilling in your living room.
Identical to real life, except for the menu.
Kill for real when you get sent to kill in real life.
Animation done so realistically, when you see the true battlefield
You think the shit was done by Disney.
They pixilated the perception of a generation.
Mesmerized the multitudes with handy little innovations.
Gave them convenient means to love their own incarceration.
Non-invasive ways that they can track and trace and database them.
And if you aint prepared to get your VeriChip,
There’s a list for you in which you’ll be labeled a terrorist.
200,000 heartless mercenary forces,
Are back from Iraq to take orders from their bosses.

(Chorus)

WAKE UP
Wake the fuck up from your slumber.
This is not a joke nor is it a test.
Wake the fuck up from your slumber.
I’ve got the undebunkable truth.
It’s all written down in black and white,
The plans, the plans, the plans, to control you.
Wake the fuck up from your slumber!

Verse II
The human language was fabricated by cannibals,
To better make the human animal understand the rules.
The alphabet got you under a spell that is magical.
You’ve been possessed ever since your first day of grammar school.
Easily programmable by your controllers,
Education developed by devils, the mind molders.
It don’t take long to get you under the spell,
And square off your head, another brick into the well.
Child protection services ruled by child molesters,
Cheaters, wife beaters, and leaders of wild fiestas.
The heads of University used to favor men, openly
And walk around naked in the gymnasium.
Today you send your children off alone to be with them
Good ole boy clubs like the Bohemian is where you’ll see them in.
You better learn about your enemy with urgency
Instead of wasting all your energy on absurdity.

(Chorus)

It’s all written down in black and white:
The plans, the plans, the plans to control YOU….

Tom Morello & Michael Moore support Occupy Wall Street on Bill Maher

Declaration of the Occupation of New York City:

As we gather together in solidarity to express a feeling of mass injustice, we must not lose sight of what brought us together. We write so that all people who feel wronged by the corporate forces of the world can know that we are your allies.

As one people, united, we acknowledge the reality: that the future of the human race requires the cooperation of its members; that our system must protect our rights, and upon corruption of that system, it is up to the individuals to protect their own rights, and those of their neighbors; that a democratic government derives its just power from the people, but corporations do not seek consent to extract wealth from the people and the Earth; and that no true democracy is attainable when the process is determined by economic power. We come to you at a time when corporations, which place profit over people, self-interest over justice, and oppression over equality, run our governments. We have peaceably assembled here, as is our right, to let these facts be known.

They have taken our houses through an illegal foreclosure process, despite not having the original mortgage.

They have taken bailouts from taxpayers with impunity, and continue to give Executives exorbitant bonuses.

They have perpetuated inequality and discrimination in the workplace based on age, the color of one’s skin, sex, gender identity and sexual orientation.

They have poisoned the food supply through negligence, and undermined the farming system through monopolization.

They have profited off of the torture, confinement, and cruel treatment of countless nonhuman animals, and actively hide these practices.

They have continuously sought to strip employees of the right to negotiate for better pay and safer working conditions.

They have held students hostage with tens of thousands of dollars of debt on education, which is itself a human right.

They have consistently outsourced labor and used that outsourcing as leverage to cut workers’ healthcare and pay.

They have influenced the courts to achieve the same rights as people, with none of the culpability or responsibility.

They have spent millions of dollars on legal teams that look for ways to get them out of contracts in regards to health insurance.

They have sold our privacy as a commodity.

They have used the military and police force to prevent freedom of the press.

They have deliberately declined to recall faulty products endangering lives in pursuit of profit.

They determine economic policy, despite the catastrophic failures their policies have produced and continue to produce.

They have donated large sums of money to politicians supposed to be regulating them.

They continue to block alternate forms of energy to keep us dependent on oil.

They continue to block generic forms of medicine that could save people’s lives in order to protect investments that have already turned a substantive profit.

They have purposely covered up oil spills, accidents, faulty bookkeeping, and inactive ingredients in pursuit of profit.

They purposefully keep people misinformed and fearful through their control of the media.

They have accepted private contracts to murder prisoners even when presented with serious doubts about their guilt.

They have perpetuated colonialism at home and abroad.

They have participated in the torture and murder of innocent civilians overseas.

They continue to create weapons of mass destruction in order to receive government contracts. *

To the people of the world,

We, the New York City General Assembly occupying Wall Street in Liberty Square, urge you to assert your power.

Exercise your right to peaceably assemble; occupy public space; create a process to address the problems we face, and generate solutions accessible to everyone.

To all communities that take action and form groups in the spirit of direct democracy, we offer support, documentation, and all of the resources at our disposal.

Join us and make your voices heard!

*These grievances are not all-inclusive.

Get money & lobbying out of the political system, both parties have become corrupt puppets of the corporate elite.

Rage against the machines Tom Morello & Michael Moore support the brave people getting maced to oblivion in the occupy wall street protests.

Lowkey Relatives Ft. Logic Lyrics

Lowkey (born Kareem Dennis, 23 May 1986[1]) is a musician, poet, playwright and political activist of English and Iraqi descent.[2] He first came to fame through a series of mixtapes he released before he was 18,[3] before taking a hiatus from the music business. He would return in 2008 with wider music coverage, featured on BBC Radio[4][5] and appearing at various festivals and concerts including the Electric Proms,[6] Glastonbury, T In The Park and Oxygen[7] in the build up to his first solo album, as well as collaborating with other famous English musicians to form a supergroup.

Buy this song on Lowkeys: Uncensored

The views expressed on this track are not directly those of Lowkey or Logic, we’re just drawing attention to the lifestyles that some people lead.

Lowkey: I was born in Bermondsey, one of the south parts

Logic: And I was born in Basra, southside of Iraq

Lowkey: We used to play football outside in the park

Logic: We used to dodge bullets outside in the dark

Lowkey: I never prayed, I was told there isn’t a god

Logic: I prayed 5 times a day its like I lived in a mosque

Lowkey: Me, I’m easy with a pint and some cricket to watch

Logic: They sanctioned everything we got, so now it isn’t a lot

Lowkey: My mum and dad worked hard, always had employment

Logic: My mom just left and my dad got poisoned
I was young but I was told that the government did it

Lowkey: From my heart I can say that I love being British
I grew with 5 older brothers and sisters

Logic: Yeah I had a lot of siblings but some have gone missing
Now it’s just me and my little sis

Lowkey: Britain’s got a lot of immigrants; they take our jobs everyday I swear I’m sick of it

Logic: My uncle’s trying to get to Britain quick

Lowkey: I’m trying to find a job

Logic: Me I’m still illiterate

Lowkey: every 2 weeks I’m signing on

Logic: we only had school a little bit

Lowkey: I got kicked out of school very early, labeled as an idiot

Logic: Before my uncle left us, he gave me his gun

Lowkey: my girl just gave me a son

Logic: You see its hot where I live, every day I bake in the sun

Lowkey: Its cold where I live so I read every page of the Sun
And I’m getting mad, with what I look at and read

Logic: I just met a couple elders that are good on their Deen.

Lowkey: My dad told me joining an army would be good for the peace

Logic: I started meeting, now I’m training with the mujahedeen
Because I’ve heard that the westerners are coming with bombs

Lowkey: I spent months in the regiment training up to be shot

Logic: But this is my land, my country, ill defend it till I pass

Lowkey: I just got the message that they’re sending me to Iraq

Pain is the same fam, its all relative
They cried the same tears, you cried for your relatives
And one way or another, my brother we’re all relatives
Home is where the heart is, yeah that’s where it is (2X)

Lowkey: Now I’m in the south of Iraq, it’s a smelly place
I don’t know who to trust, everybody’s got a hairy face

Logic: And Bazara’s a scary place, its worse than it used to be
They’re dropping bombs everyday

Lowkey: Even little boys shoot at me

Logic: I shoot at white faces, and any green suit I see

Lowkey: Every regiment’s lost a couple of troops; we’ve lost 2 or 3

Logic: I still go to pray in the same place the mosque used to be

Lowkey: I see little kids starving to death, with no food to eat,
But an orders an order, we’ve got to clean the city up

Logic: they see how we’re suffering, and still they don’t pity us
They shoot us every day tomorrow’s probably me

Lowkey: We’re trying to help these bastards, but its like they don’t want to be free

Logic: Yeah these people don’t know what freedom is

Lowkey: I saw my colleague rape a woman against her will, but I didn’t agree with it

Logic: I shot a soldier in the face and then I had to run quick

Lowkey: My sergeant got shot in his face by some dumb young kid,
Now I just want to go home that’s where my heart is

Logic: My heart is in Basra, and never will I part it

Lowkey: this wars going nowhere, tell me why did we start this

Logic: I’m fighting regardless till I’m resting where Allah is

Lowkey: come to think of it, I should have never joined the army
And when I think about it, I don’t hate these Iraqi’s

Logic: Yeah bullets flying past me, I’m scared but I cant run,
I take my sister upstairs and get my uncle’s old gun

Lowkey: Don’t know if it’s terrorists or just some civilians,
But I’ve been told to neutralize the threat up in that building

Logic: I see the soldiers they’re about to pass, I take my pistol out and blast

Lowkey: A bullet wizzes by my face and tears my friends mouth apart,
I saw red, and starting shooting to make em all dead

Logic: I tried to guard my sister, but a bullet hit her forehead

Lowkey: I ran up the steps to see if I buried them all
But all I saw was

Logic: my little sister dead on the floor

Our pain is the same, but its all relative
They cried the same tears, you cried for your relatives
And one way or another, my brother we’re all relatives
Home is where the heart is, yeah that’s where it is

[Verse 1 – M1 Of Dead Prez]
After you divorce yourself from the right wing
Propaganda campaign, it’s all simple and plain
America customed the game
Your president got an African name, now who you gone blame?
When they drop them bombs out of them planes
Using depleted uranium, babies looking like two headed aliens
Follow the money trail it leads to the criminal
Ain’t nothing subliminal to it, that’s how they do it
See they game they run, give a f-ck if he’s cunning
Articulate and handsome, Afghanistan held for ransom
By the hand of this black man, neo-colonial puppet
White power with a black face, he said f-ck it i’ll do it
A master of disguise, expert at telling lies
Then they gave him a Nobel Peace Price
Should of known he was trained in Chicago
Word to Chairmen Fred and Mark Clark
What they do in the dark will come out in the light
Like a wiki leaks site
So I guess Nkrumah was right, who’s ready to fight?
Last stage of imperialism, I ain’t kiddin
In the immortal words of Marvin Gaye ‘This ain’t living’

You was V.I.P. at the B.I.C

The same way your cameras are watching us we’re watching you
Think we’re easy to control you ain’t got a clue
Revolutions on the way, let’s see what your gonna do
You gonna send the troops? You gonna drop the nukes?
See it’s not where you’re from it’s where you’re at
He’s sitting in the White House so who cares if he’s black
And why’s there soldiers still out there in Iraq?
Natural resources ain’t yours, its theirs give it back!
You’re just another puppet but i’m not surprised
Look at Colin Powell and Condoleezza Rice
They didn’t change shit, house nigga’s fresh off the slave ship
You’ll all burn in hell even Michelle, Obama Nation

Military bases from Chagos to Okinawa
I say things that other rappers won’t say
Cause my mind never closed like Guantanamo Bay
Hope you didn’t build a statue or tattoo your arm
Cause the drones are still flying over Pashtunistan
Did he defend the war? No! He extended more
He even had the time to attempt a coup in Ecuador
Morales and Chavez, the state’s are on a hunt for ya
Military now stationed on bases in Columbia
Take a trip to the past and tell em I was right
Ask Ali Abunimah or Jeremiah Wright
Drones over Pakistan, Yemen and Libya
Is Obama the bomber getting ready for Syria?
First black president, the masses were hungry
But the same president just bombed an african country

Sage Francis — Conspiracy To Riot, Music Video & Lyrics

Sage Francis — Conspiracy To Riot

Born Paul Francis in Miami, Florida, Sage Francis is a rapper/writer/performer from Providence, Rhode Island. He is the founder and CEO of the independent hip-hop record label Strange Famous Records.

Conspiracy to Riot is produced by Reanimator. It was originally recorded as a way to raise money to help out protestors who were falsely arrested at 2008’s Republican National Convention. Jared Paul (lead vocalist of Prayers for Atheists) can be heard at the beginning and end of this song. He was one of the many people who were unjustly thrown in jail at this protest only to have all charges dropped at a later date.

Enjoy this video.

Sage Francis — Conspiracy To Riot Lyrics

They wanna corrupt me. They tried to corrupt me.
This ain’t no Swan Song. This is for the ugly ducklings of my country.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE HERE!
‘psst psst; conspiracy to riot.’

Peep the game, dummy. You can’t keep the reign from me.
It’s us who put in the over time, they who make the money.
Snickering at trickle down economy.
We got nickled and dimed? It’s more like highway robbery.
Drive in the fast lane. Eyes on the gas gauge.
Listen to neo-cons cry about black rage.
It doesn’t stop there.
They’re the blowhards. They puff out their chest. They’re full of hot air.
Providing entertainment for the status quo.
Then once every 4 years they pander to the black vote.
Oh, religion ain’t a tool of control?
Then why they pull the God card once they’re losing in the polls?
Foolish. I know. We’re victims of circumstance.
It ain’t coincidence we’re children of the worker ants.
While those in power ain’t never owned a pair of dirty pants
But they’re quick to kill your health insurance plans.
The rich cheat death with their cheap survival.
They found more than one way to beat the Bible.
Street disciple… my beats are trifle mega.
Don’t repeat the cycle, just live your life better.
I’m gonna defeat my rival. That’s why I’m writing this letter
to let em know we ain’t givin’ up the fight ever.

‘psst psst; conspiracy to riot’

They wanna corrupt me. They tried to corrupt me.
This ain’t no Swan Song. This is for the ugly ducklings of my country.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE HERE!
‘psst psst; conspiracy to riot.’

Oh yeah; I’ve got a weapon of mass destruction’;
Parked in the back and it’s a vessel of gas consumption.
Rebels of rap production never adapted to nothing.
Imagine my laugh whenever ask me for something.
Like I ain’t gave it my all.
You came fashionably late to the headbanger’s ball.
After the mob scene lost steam,
And after we spilled pig’s blood on the prom queen.
I’ve been told with old age comes wisdom,
But I’ve found with old age comes old age.
We’re stuck in our old ways like everything was done much better
in some forgotten era. Thumb sucking America.
I can’t begin to name the ways I’d pin the blame
on an administration acting inhumane.
If it’s killing season let’s start within.
When the hunter becomes the hunted they outlaw hunting (ain’t that something.)
Confiscate the ammunition!
Cuz there’s a wolf in sheep’s skin. A pit bull with lipstick.
A pig in a blanket. Some lame duck President
privatizing profit and socializing debt.
Collapsed credit. Journalists get arrested.
Watch the Blackwater operatives go domestic.
Oh, that’s a problem? Well don’t agonize.
Smoke ’em if you got ’em. A whole pack of lies.
Summer spring and autumn. Now bring the wintertime.
I don’t protest snow. I shovel it with picket signs.

‘psst psst; conspiracy to riot’

They wanna corrupt me. They tried to corrupt me.
This ain’t no Swan Song. This is for the ugly ducklings of my country.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE HERE!

We have the right to assembly and it’s the duty of the patriot
to protect his country from the government.
But when we try it; but when we try it;
But when we try it;
it’s CONSPIRACY TO RIOT!

Peace rally with my friends. Conspiracy to riot.
When we have no defense. Conspiracy to riot.
Rubber bullets to our heads. Conspiracy to riot.
Conspiracy to riot. Conspiracy to riot.

When we find voter fraud. Conspiracy to riot.
When we defy overlords. Conspiracy to riot.
When we finally pull the cord. Conspiracy to riot.
Conspiracy to riot. Conspiracy to riot.

‘Til the truth is revealed. Conspiracy to riot.
We ain’t choosing to kneel. Conspiracy to riot.
Let me be the human shield. Conspiracy to riot.
Conspiracy to riot. Conspiracy to riot.

Enjoy this video.

Stephen Lynch — America Lyrics

Hey Hey What do you say
I come from a place called the US of A
Ho Ho What do you know
Hop in my car and lets go

Well, This is a song for America
Home of the red, white and blue
Land of Marilyn Monroe and James Dean
Apple pie, baseball and Shell gasoline
and if you don’t love her fuck you

Beloved by all from Tecrete to Beijing
If the world were a school we’d be homecoming king
Worshipped by France and by North Vietnam
Afghanistan thinks we’re the bomb

Oh, This is a song for America
Home of the red, white and blue
Land of Marilyn Monroe and James Dean
Apple pie, baseball and Shell gasoline
SUV’s, handguns and US magazine
and if you don’t love her fuck you

Our human rights record is something of note
We freed all our slaves and gave women the vote
Everyones equal, forever always
Unless you’re one of them gays

Oh, This is a song for America
Home of the red, white and blue
Land of Marilyn Monroe and James Dean
Apple pie, baseball and Shell gasoline
SUV’s, handguns and US magazine
Low carb diets and fast food cuisine
and if you don’t love her fuck you

To all war torn nations to those in termoil
We’ll help you kill despots we’ll help you drill oil
And if you don’t want our help, thats okay
We’re coming in anyway

Oh, This is a song for America
Home of the red, white and blue
Land of Marilyn Monroe and James Dean
Apple pie, baseball and Shell gasoline
SUV’s, handguns and US magazine
Low carb diets and fast food cuisine
Crack, cocaine, Abu Ghraib and nicotine
Swindling CEOs getting off clean
Housewives all hopped up on amphetamine
Nipples get rated NC-17
FEMA and levies and Huricance Katrine
George Bush’s great rolling war machine
I think we’re in trouble don’t you

It might seem I don’t think our country’s so great
But intolerance, bigotry, greed’s what I hate
Most folks are honest and decent and true
Peaceful, compassionate, good through and through
Thats what it means to be red, whtie and blue
and if you don’t think so fuck you
if you don’t think so fuck you


Help support Stephen Lynch by going to his 3-ballons tour.

Lowkey – Terrorist? Music Video & Lyrics

Lowkey – Terrorist?

British musician and poet Lowkey, who is of Iraqi descent, wrote this song critical of American military actions, showing how the true terrorists are not the people from the middle east.

Enjoy this video.

Lowkey – Terrorist? Lyrics

So, we must ask ourselves, what is the dictionary definition of Terrorism?

“The systematic use of terror, especially as a means of coercion.”

But what is terror?

According to the dictionary I hold in my hand,
“Terror is violent or destructive acts, such as bombing
committed by groups in order to intimidate a population or government into granting their demands.”

So what’s a terrorist?

[Chorus]
They’re calling me a terrorist
Like they don’t know who the terror is
When they put it on me, I tell them this
I’m all about peace and love (Peace and love)

They’re calling me a terrorist
Like they don’t know who the terror is
Insulting my intelligence
Oh how these people judge (People judge)

[Verse 1]
It seems like the Rag-heads and Paki’s are worrying your Dad
But your dad’s favorite food is curry and kebab
It’s funny but it’s sad how they make your mummy hurry with her bags
Rather read The Sun than study all the facts
Tell me, what’s the bigger threat to human society;
B.A.E Systems or home made I.E.D’s?
Remote controlled drones, killing off human lives
Or man with home made bomb committing suicide
I know you were terrified when you saw the towers fall
It’s all terror but some forms are more powerful
It seems nuts, how could there be such agony?
When more Israeli’s die from peanut allergies
It’s like the definition didn’t ever exist
I guess it’s all just depending who your nemesis is
Irrelevant how eloquent the rhetoric peddler is
They’re telling fibs, now tell us who the terrorist is

[Chorus]
They’re calling me a terrorist
Like they don’t know who the terror is
When they put it on me, I tell them this
I’m all about peace and love (Peace and love)

They’re calling me a terrorist
Like they don’t know who the terror is
Insulting my intelligence
Oh how these people judge (People judge)

[Verse 2]
Lumumba was democracy
Mossadegh was democracy
Allende was democracy
Hypocrisy it bothers me
Call you terrorists if you don’t wanna be a colony
Refuse to bow down to a policy of robberies
Is terrorism my lyrics? (is it?)
When more Vietnam vets kill themselves after the war than die in it
This is very basic
One nation in the world has over a thousand military bases
They say it’s religion, when clearly it isn’t
It’s not just Muslims that oppose your imperialism
Is Hugo Chavez a Muslim? Nah… I didn’t think so
Is Castro a Muslim? Nah… I didn’t think so
It’s like the definition didn’t ever exist
I guess it’s all just depending who your nemesis is
Irrelevant how eloquent the rhetoric peddler is
They’re telling fibs, now tell us who the terrorist is

[Chorus]
They’re calling me a terrorist
Like they don’t know who the terror is
When they put it on me, I tell them this
I’m all about peace and love (Peace and love)

They’re calling me a terrorist
Like they don’t know who the terror is
Insulting my intelligence
Oh how these people judge (People judge)

[Outro]
(You think that I don’t know, but I know, I know, I know…
You think we don’t know, but we know…) [5x]

Was building 7 terrorism?
Was nano thermite terrorism?
Diego Garcia was terrorism
I am conscious the Contras were terrorism
Phosphorus that burns hands, that is terrorism
Irgun and Stern Gang that was terrorism
What they did in Hiroshima was terrorism
What they did in Fallujah was terrorism
Mandella ANC that was terrorism
Gerry Adams I.R.A that was terrorism
Erik Prince Blackwater was terrorism
Oklahoma McVeigh, that was terrorism
Every day U.S.A that is terrorism
Every day U.K that is terrorism

(Every day) [7x]
(Oh…)
(hey…)
(You think that we don’t know, but we do…)

Lowkey Ft. Shadia Mansour – Too Much Music Video & Lyrics

Lowkey Ft. Shadia Mansour – Too Much

Lowkey (born Kareem Dennis, 23 May 1986) is a musician, poet, playwright and political activist of English and Iraqi descent.

This video is about the fact that no matter how greedy you are, money does not buy any of the things important to life, it is set in Cuba and shows the insanity of the sanctions placed on that country by the U.S.

Enjoy this video.

Lowkey Ft. Shadia Mansour – Too Much Lyrics

[Intro: Lauryn Hill]
If you down with the rich man, and that can be rich in anything,
Don’t you take too much,
If you laugh at a poor man, and that can be poor in anything,
Don’t you laugh too much,
If you tryin to be rich man, and that can be rich in anything
Don’t you take too much,
And if you need to be needed, and you’re lookin’ for purpose,
Just remember, don’t you need too much…

[Hook: Shadia Mansour]
If you take something you, don’t need, and keep it
Then you started from somebody else who’s hungry
Everything that you do, is everything you are
Everything that I am, is everything you ever need.

[Verse 1: Lowkey]
Money can buy power, but it can’t buy respect
Money can’t buy sleep, but it can buy a bed
Money can’t buy you love, but it can buy sex
Do you posses money or by money are you possessed?
Money can buy a house, but it can’t buy a home
So even with money you still feel all alone
Money can buy you friends, but it can’t buy family
Money can’t make you happy, that’s just a fallacy
It can buy a bath, but it can’t buy purity
It can buy bodyguards, but it can’t buy security
While people around the world starve, I eat
Cause money can buy war, but it can’t buy peace
Some do everything and anything to get the p’s
The society we livin’ in, it’s a necessity
It’s got the power to turn your best friends to enemies
It’s funny cause money doesn’t follow us when we leave.

[Hook: Shadia Mansour]
If you take something you, don’t need, and keep it
Then you started from somebody else who’s hungry
Everything that you do, is everything you are
Everything that I am, is everything you ever need.

[Verse 2: Lowkey]
Does happiness live in a mansion with a swimming pool?
I know people with plenty of money that are miserable
We all need to earn in this world we live
Most work for it, some still, but many worship it
Some sell poison for it, some seek employment for it
We need it to survive, so some clean the toilets for it
I need papes to live but never will I live for papes
Abolish the Queen, I don’t wanna see that witches face
Many sell their soul for it, no not me
Some will try to tell you that it doesn’t grow on trees
I heard the sayin said, many a time, but they were wrong
Cause if it doesn’t tell me where do you get the paper from?
Most think they will be happy if they only had more of it
Some wasted, some feel more important because they’re born with it
Some have got the nerve to say you’re fraudulent for forging it
The truth is you don’t need a fortune to be fortunate.

[Hook: Shadia Mansour]
If you take something you, don’t need, and keep it
Then you started from somebody else who’s hungry
Everything that you do, is everything you are
Everything that I am, is everything you’ll ever need.
